Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Changes from SSBWU/3DS
Link's appearance is based off his appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild when wearing the Champion's Tunic, with his classic appearance being an alternate costume.
This means now Link is Right-handed, instead of Left-handed like his predecessors.
Link received a new jab combo.
When at 0%, he can fire a projectile beam from his sword when using his forward smash.
Grabs and Throws
Link no longer uses the clawshot or hookshot for his grab; as such, he also no longer possesses a tether recovery.
All of Link's Special Moves have their appearance updated to reflect its appearance in Breath of the Wild.
Link can pick up arrows that miss their targets; the next time the bow is used, it will then fire two arrows instead of one. Picked up arrows can also be thrown as items.
Link's Bombs can be detonated remotely; he is only able to have one bomb on the stage at a time, rather than two.
The Gale Boomerang has been replaced with an ordinary Boomerang.
Link has a new Final Smash that replaces Triforce Slash, in which Link uses the Ancient Bow to fire an Ancient Arrow in front of him in a similar fashion to Light Arrow.
